"I was the account manager for our Netherlands clients for several years – and I was very heartened by the  Dutch publishing companies’ use of a lot of our contemporary material for their book covers.   
 

 This wonderful image from the Special Photographers Archive was used by Ailantus for a book cover in 2008."

"This image by Pater will hopefully be in this year’s Glyndebourne Festival programme.
 

I have been fortunate to do lots of requests for opera programmes - particularly for Glyndebourne, The Royal Opera House and Goteborgs Opera in Sweden among others. 
 

I love going to the opera and really enjoy sourcing images for opera companies."

 

 

"We are privileged to have a lot of works by Lucian Freud in the library and I am lucky to have worked on several books/monographs that have been published including Bruce Bernard’s 'Lucian Freud' and Mark Holborn’s 'Lucian Freud: Works on Paper.' 


On both occasions the authors were kind enough to include my name on the 'thanks' page."

"The most glorious yellow painting you could find. I tried to get this on quite a few book covers and finally managed it with Penguin’s cover for Huysman’s “Against Nature” in 2003."
